"I am here as your servant. I can perform any simple task." With the new "Westworld" show on everyone's minds, it's a perfect time to feature this new short film titled Judy. This first premiered at Fantastic Fest this year, and I owe Tim League thanks for the tip on its online debut. Judy is set in the near future and is about a guy who randomly receives an android assistant at his door one day. It starts out amusing, gets a bit raunchy, then ends on a very twisted note. I won't spoil it - you just need to be aware this may not play out the way you want. It's also a cautionary tale about how emotionless we can/will get with more technology.
Description of the film from Fantastic Fest: "A man opens a door to a robot that boasts exceptional ability and intelligence, but the man has only one thing on his mind. Practiced vulgarity that escalates to a darkly hysterical extreme." Judy is written, directed and produced by Alex Kavutskiy & Ariel Gardner; with cinematography by Jay Carey, and music composed by Jason Martin Castillo. Starring Paul Isakson, Kate Freund & Brady Novak. This short film played at Fantastic Fest as well as the LA Shorts Fest and Telluride Horror Fest. For more from Alex & Ariel, visit their Vimeo page.
